    Requesting help in diagram conversion

    Hi everyone. I'm a beginning student in database systems and I would like to ask a quick question.

    I am looking for a program that can convert UML "crow's feet" notation to an ER diagram. I have a UML "crow's feet" diagram created using the ERWIN software in ERWIN's native .ER1 format.

    Could anyone suggest a shareware/freeware program that can do that, please?

    Thanks a lot!

    Thanks, I took a look at those programs. I took a detailed look at ConceptDraw but it seems that neither that nor anything else there can convert from ERD to UML. I guess this is not a common type of conversion in the database world?

    yes, it is not very common for someone to be in possession of a diagram produced by ERwin without actually having ERwin
